Clinton, whose foundation is working on clean energy programs that would employ additional workers, and Buffett met with Obama as part of a White House push on the economy and employment. On Tuesday, Obama tapped Jacob Lew as budget director and publicly directed him to reduce the deficit. On Thursday, Obama travels to Michigan to talk job creation once more.
Gibbs said the timing of the two Wednesday meetings was coincidental, and that Buffett initiated their sit-down.
"You don't turn down an opportunity to talk to Warren Buffett," Gibbs said. Buffett has been an Obama supporter and adviser since backing him in the 2008 primaries.
The Clinton meeting was designed to "discuss new ways to create jobs in the private sector and continue to build on the success we have seen through the Recovery Act on building public-private partnerships in the clean energy sector," a White House statement said.

The Clinton Climate Initiatives (CCI) Energy Efficiency Building Retrofit Program (EEBRP) brings together many of the worlds largest cities, energy service firms and financial institutions in a landmark effort to reduce energy consumption in existing buildings. CCI works with industry, financial, government and building partners to overcome market barriers and develop financially sound solutions that accelerate the growth of the global building efficiency market. CCI provides support to building owners such as city governments, commercial portfolio owners, schools, universities, and public housing authorities in identifying, designing, and implementing large-scale energy efficiency retrofit projects and brings the owner together with the necessary contracting and financial firms for implementation.
So let’s see if Clinton can waive his magic wand and get Obama out of this.
Geez, somebody at the WH must have gotten a brand new bag of nose candy....
No, but he can wave his magic wand and get more gov $$$$ in his CCI coffers.
Obama would have been better off having a meeting with the Republican Congress that forced Clinton to become a “fiscal conservative”. But Obama’s intellect is as overrated as Clinton’s virility.
I thought in the campaign it was Joe Biden who said he would be looking over the shoulder of the Jr. Senator to make sure things got done right.
‘So lets see if Clinton can waive his magic wand and get Obama out of this.’
Not likely. Hillary is tanned and ready for 2012.
Key thing to watch. Will the Kenyan be invited to Chelsea’s wedding? I bet not.
And that is all I needed to hear.

Bubba and Hillary buying a mansion.....Interesting!!!
He’s the first person listed....Sorry...

Do any of them honestly believe that the tech boom and Y2K, and the (temporary) jobs they created, would not have happened if Clinton wasn't President?
This seems to be the industrial route Michigan has chosen to go under Granholm. I can't help but think our state is investing in the buggy whip industry.
The only one to benefit from this meeting is Bill Clinton.
Nice to see Obama having his A$$ handed to him.
What’s next, VP Hillary?
It wasn’t the dot com boom. It was $12 a barrel oil, which was really Bush’s brainchild since he evicted Saddam from Kuwait and made it happen.
It wasnt the dot com boom.
Bill to Obama: “Give me money or I take the leash off Hillary.”
Recovery Act on building public-private partnerships in the clean energy sector
Whenever you hear about “public-private partnerships,” you’re hearing about a fascist concept.
The Administration knows it’s impossible to own the means of production. It’s more effective to control the means of production.
I think the stimulus was an attempt to generate another boom. It didn’t, but we still have to pay back the money we borrowed to pay for the boom we didn’t get.
